The force will soon be with Pip Andersen and Crystal Clarke.

Via an extensive open casting call, these relative unknown have been added to the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII, Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Pictures confirmed in a statement yesterday.

Andersen (a parkour professional) and Clarke (an aspiring actress) were two of over 37,000 people to visit cities across the U.S. and Great Britain and audition for producers of this upcoming blockbuster.

"The Star Wars universe has always been about discovering and nurturing young talent and in casting Episode VII we wanted to remain absolutely faithful to this tradition," Lucasfilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy said, adding:

"We are delighted that so many traveled to see us at the open casting calls and that we have been able to make Crystal and Pip a part of the film."

No word yet on just what roles Anderson and Clarke will take on.

Star Wars: Episode VII is shooting in London, though changes in the schedule have been made as a result of Harrison Ford breaking his ankle.

Directed by J.J. Abrams, the film will bring back Carrie Fisher, Ford and Mark Hamill.

New cast members include John Boyega, Gwendoline Christie, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Daisy Ridley, Andy Serkis and Max von Sydow.

Look for Star Wars: Episode VII to open on December 18, 2015.
